PHINISI YACHTS

CHARTER A LUXURY YACHT INSPIRED BY INDONESIA’S MARITIME PAST

Centuries ago, Indonesia’s wooden Phinisi boats carried nutmeg, sandalwood and textiles through the ancient spice trading route. Boat builders in Bira, Sulawesi took several years to build each yacht, crafting their long bowsprits, double masts and multiple sails by hand.

Our fleet of Phinisi yachts combine this traditional design with modern-day engineering and all the top-tier amenities that today’s traveler would expect. Charter one of our Phinisi sailing yachts to channel your spirit of adventure and cruise Indonesia’s far-flung island destinations in style.
